Upgrade to HD-PVR Problems - Help!

Ok, I'm in hot water with my wife and two daughters. Last night I swapped out my Comcast SD STB for a HD model and installed a HD-PVR (HDPVR for people searching). It was also the season premier of House and Castle. I was unable to get it all to work so I switched SageTV back to my PVR-350. Little did I know that the HD STB remapped my non-HD channels to HD channels so while I recorded the video fine, I had no audio. Thank goodness for Hulu (I hope).

So after the recordings, I stayed up till 2 am trying to get the HD-PVR working (thus the hot water with the wife). I was unsuccessful so I'm taking the day off to get it to work. So far, no luck. Here are my issues that I hope someone can help. I have spent several hours going through the forums and trying everything before this post. From my signature, my Server is Win2008R2 and Client is Win7. SageTV version is

1. Video recording is working but I'm recording no Audio. When I record and playback using TME everything is fine.

2. On my Win2008R2 server, I can't see any H264 or AC3 decoders using DirectShow Filter Manager. Consequently when I try to watch a recording, SageTV crashes.

3. On my Win7 Client, I have the Windows DTV-DVD decoders but when I try to watch a H264 video, SageTV errors with the message PlaybackException: ERROR(-4,0 0x80040217) Problem rendering the video portion of the content.

I'm thinking about buying the CoreAVC decoders. Anybody know if they will work with Win2008R2?

Any help with this will be most appreciated since if I don't get this working before they all get home today, I'm really going to be in deep doo-doo.
